Megan Griffiths: What happens to your rubbish – waste as a resource.
Megan is the Waste Education Officer at JR Richards & Sons, the biggest supplier of waste and recycling services on the mid north coast. Megan’s presentation will look at what happens when you put your rubbish bins out: what happens next? You’ll take a virtual tour inside the Materials Recovery Facility located at Tuncurry and see exactly what products are recycled, how it happens and what happens to them next.
Megan is primarily responsible for Waste Education for Midcoast Waste Services, servicing the MidCoast Council area – previously Great Lakes, Greater Taree and Gloucester Councils. Megan assists in the development and delivery of programs throughout the area, working with schools and community groups to promote recycling and encourage reuse.
